If foyers create the first impressions in traditional homes—lobbies matter most when it comes to high-rise living. You can think of it as a preview of sorts for what the property can offer. If you're thinking about investing in a unit or you're just looking for a boost of inspiration, here are some places to check out: 

Paris Beach Club at the Azure Urban Resort 

Furnished with felt lounge chairs and marble fittings, the lobby at Paris Beach Club is comparable to a luxury resort's. You even get a view of a man-made beach and a floating bar outside. Can you expect less from a place approved by Paris Hilton herself?  

Azure Urban Resort is located at Km. 16, West Service Road, Bicutan, Paranaque City.

Knightsbridge Residences

If you couldn't tell from the color scheme and hints of the UK flag here and there, the concept of Knightsbridge Residences was inspired by England-Knightsbridge, London. It's the perfect spot to pretend to be a Brit for a day and sip tea while reading a good book. 

Knightsbridge Residences is located at 4392 B. Valdez, Makati City. 

Acqua Iguazu

If you're a fan of minimalist-inspired decor and graphic designs, you'll love the Acqua Iguazu lobby. This space is perfect for taking Instagram-worthy photos and family shots, too. This development was designed by Yoo, inspired by superstar French designer Philippe Starck. 

Acqua Iguazu is located at 1550 Coronado, Mandaluyong City. 

Sapphire Bloc

If you have a unique and distinct taste in design, The Sapphire Bloc is a property you need to check out in Ortigas. Aside from housing a one-of-a-kind retail mix, it looks and feels similar to a lot of high-end hotels, you'll forget you're at the heart of Manila, most especially in the Art Deco-inspired lobby, which was designed by Frenjick Quesada of Design HQ. 

Sapphire Bloc is located at Sapphire Road, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
